Thank you to all who commented on the issues of children learning in preschool settings.
It is the best feedback to hear from other mothers and what they have gone thru.
Today was a day we took control and voiced our concerns with how the system is letting us down.
We met with the supervisors and therapist and realized it is not only our child in this "teachers" classroom that is having difficulties.
This was the 3rd day our child was forced to sit and color the same sheet of paper for 45 min.
Seriously, who could sit and color for 45mins on one sheet of paper. This is what we are paying for as parents to help teach our children!!!!
We had enough!
It is time that parents stand up and pay attention to what is going on. If we wouldn't have stepped in and said something nothing would have ever been done to notice this "teacher" is not teaching or treating the kids with kindness.
Parents, when you are going to blame the schools for lack of education, please take a stand and get to the bottom of this. We found that this "teacher" teaches 10 classes and nothing has ever been brought to the schools attention.
Think of all those other kids that have been in her class and push out or made to sit for 45 minutes mind numbing coloring.
SPEAK UP! DO SOMETHING!
We as parents have to take charge and be PARENTS!
Voice your concerns, get involved.
As for my time that I have when nap time comes around....I have pulled out the baby clothes quilt again to get working on. I have a box of clothes to cut down and patch on. Little by little I get it out and work. It is a big project that will take years since it is meant to catalog all of his clothes throughout the years of his life. I will present it to him on his 16th birthday. Who knows maybe he will pass it to his first child years and years from now.
I am dedicated to working on things for my family this summer. I am finding great peace and happiness with it. No rushing to make orders or getting to the post office, nope just peaceful happy sewing with meaning.
